It's a book!
Thanking the Moon: Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is here!! This is a companion book to my Lunar New Year book, Bringing in the New Year so I hope people enjoy it! This is also the book where I painted the likenesses of my long-ago contest (using their photos).
The Moon Festival is one of the most important holidays of the year. While Bringing in the New Year focuses on the exuberance of the Lunar New Year, Thanking the Moon is about the harmony and peace of the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival. This holiday is rather like Thanksgiving, where families gather together in honor of the moon. Here's a sneak peek at some of the interiors:
In honor of my new book Thanking the Moon: Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival I'm running a week-long series of posts on the Moon Festival. Don't forget you can celebrate the book & the festival with me Sunday the 19th in NYC at the MOCA's Mid-Autumn Family Festival!
